When someone has a beautiful and confident smile, they feel like they can do pretty much anything. Of course, the opposite is often true if a person feels self-conscious about their teeth due to a multitude of aesthetic flaws. At our dental office, Dr. Gasper is an expert at giving our patients the smiles of their dreams in the most efficient and comfortable way possible. Whether you just want whiter teeth or a complete makeover, he can help you get to the point that whenever you see your smile in the mirror, you’re instantly ready to take on the day with cosmetic dentistry in Colorado Springs.
Invisalign can help you straighten your teeth without anyone noticing that you’re doing it. Instead of brackets and wires, it uses crystal-clear aligner trays to reliably correct crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth. Friends and coworkers won’t be able to see them, and you can easily slip the trays off whenever it’s time to eat or brush, helping Invisalign fit seamlessly into your life. Most patients are able to see complete results in as little as 12-18 months!
In the world of cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are truly a miracle treatment. This one procedure can easily fix a wide variety of flaws all at once, including permanently stained teeth, obvious gaps, chipped/cracked teeth, and even slightly misaligned teeth. Thin, custom-made ceramic shells are fitted over the front of the teeth, and they are shaped to look like pristinely white enamel, helping anyone achieve a Hollywood-style smile in just two appointments.
When repairing a tooth, Dr. Gasper doesn’t want to just restore its strength, but its beauty as well, which is why he provides metal-free restorations. These are made of 100% white ceramic, helping him create crowns, inlays, and onlays that can be perfectly color-matched to any smile. These restorations look so lifelike that even our patients have trouble telling them apart from their natural teeth, meaning you’ll be able to flash your smile without worrying about people noticing your dental work.
Patients in need of a quick fix for a single dark spot, chip, or gap can easily get what they need in just an hour or less with direct bonding. Dr. Gasper will simply apply a naturally-colored composite resin to your problem tooth, and then he’ll shape it to look like a regular part of the enamel, masking any imperfection along the way. This treatment is not only fast, but completely painless as well, and the results can last for about 10 years with the proper maintenance.
Your teeth can become stained for any number of reasons, ranging from darkly colored drinks like coffee and wine to natural aging. With Zoom!

This treatment combines a powerful bleaching gel with a low-UV light to break up even the most stubborn stains in just an hour or less. In the time it takes for the average lunch break, you can easily make your teeth 6-8 shades whiter!

At Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, we can change your smile and change your life with cosmetic dentistry! With so many options to choose from, it’s natural to have a few questions about improving your smile. For your convenience, we’ve gathered some of the most common questions we get about cosmetic dentistry below. If you don’t see the answers you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to give us a call and we’ll be more than happy to help!
Practically anyone who doesn’t love the look of their smile can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. However, you may need to complete a few preliminary treatments first before you’re considered a good candidate. Issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and teeth grinding can make some cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening uncomfortable or threaten the success of options like dental crowns and veneers. If your cosmetic dentist detects any of these issues, we’ll help you regain a healthy smile before improving its appearance.
Different cosmetic treatments take different amounts of time. How long it will take to improve your smile will depend on what services you’re interested in, the severity and number of issues being corrected, and if you need any preliminary treatments. If you’re in a rush to give your smile a boost, you may want to consider treatments like teeth whitening or dental bonding. These quick and simple treatments can dramatically enhance your smile in a single appointment! More custom solutions like metal-free restorations and porcelain veneers typically take a few visits over the course of several weeks. If you’re considering correcting your orthodontic issues, Invisalign is an excellent way to get a straighter smile that usually takes far less time than traditional metal braces.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about looks. These treatments can also help:
In some cases, your dental insurance may cover the cost of cosmetic treatments that also count as a restorative service, such as a metal-free crown or Invisalign. However, cosmetic treatments that are simply used to improve your appearance are typically not covered by dental insurance. However, that doesn’t mean the smile you’ve always wanted is out of reach! We offer low- to no-interest financing options through CareCredit. This will let you break down the cost of your treatment into easy payments that fit into your monthly budget.
